Biplabi’s involvement and work on women and young people’s Sexual and Reproductive Rights (SRR) are inspired by the lived realities of women and girls in Asia. Prior to ARROW, her work in Nepal focused on capacity strengthening of women and young people at the local and national level on HIV related issues.
At ARROW, as a programme officer from 2009-2012 and as senior programme officer from 2014-2016, she has coordinated multi-country partnership projects such as Women’s Health and Rights Advocacy Partnership (WHRAP) in South Asia and Right Here Right Now (RHRN), that are focused on improving women and young people’s SRR.
As a programme manager at ARROW from 2017-2019, Biplabi managed ARROW’s programme that builds constituencies with new organisations and alliances to develop knowledge and ownership of gender, feminism, and SRR issues by strengthening the linkages between issues that pose challenges to the SRR agenda such as but not limited to climate change, conflict and crisis situations, disability, migration, food insecurity, religious fundamentalism and conservatism.
Biplabi holds a master degree in Gender and Peace Building from University for Peace in Costa Rica with a full scholarship from Asian-Peacebuilders Scholarship (APS).
